Abstract:

Tests on the study of corrosion resistance of metals to the action of dichloroethane showed that the loss in the weight of metals in an atmosphere of this solvent is insignificant and the dichloroethane molecule is comparatively stable. There is no need to fear heavy corrosion of equipment in using dichloroethane as a solvent in the process of the hydrolysis of vegetal resources by concentrated sulfuric acid.
